THQ has announced that MotoGP 3, which will be known as MotoGP: Ultimate Racing Technology 3 outside of North America, is currently in development at Climax. Scheduled for release during the third quarter of 2005, the game will purportedly feature photo-realistic race circuits and an all-new gameplay mode--details of which have not been released at this time.

"We have had considerable success with MotoGP and MotoGP 2, and our agreement with Climax provides an exciting opportunity to develop a gripping racing game with more real tracks, riders, and equipment than ever before--giving gamers and MotoGP fans an ultimate interactive gaming experience."
"We are so proud and delighted that THQ has once again chosen Climax as their preferred development partner," added Karl Jeffery, CEO of Climax. "The new game promises to extend the hugely successful MotoGP franchise and set the new gold standard for the online racing genre."
